An hour ago, your head was still filled with homework.

Action in Family World 

Three different slides await you here! And yes, indeed, you will need to be ultra-brave at the start of the speed slide. You might well set a few speed records, with an automatic timekeeping system that will confirm who was the fastest! Meanwhile, reaction time is what it's all about in the Black Hole rafting slide. Who can hit the most touchpoints and make the highest score?
And outside? From May until October, the 4-track wave slide guarantees all kinds of enjoyment and a great way to cool off on those hot days – Family World offers everything for your family holiday in Gastein.

Bathing enjoyment for the youngsters

So much to discover, in our new outdoor toddler pool

Long awaited. And opened in 2021: Right next to the 4-strack wave slide, our youngest Alpentherme guests are greeted by a small paradise all their own! Fun play animals in the water, two small slides, a waterfall, a cave and a fountain invite young explorers to play to their heart's content. Meanwhile, mom & dad can keep a close eye on things from the edge of the pool, where there are comfortable seats and even a sun sail providing shade on those hot summer days. Our outdoor toddler pool is open from May to October!
